Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Victoria's hose for our honeymoon. Leading up to the check in Victoria was very easy to communicate with and she gave us everything we needed to ease our check in. During our stay, she maintained her excellent communication, this made our honeymoon very enjoyable and stress free. We especially loved that she had a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the apt as soon as we arrived. Not many hosts do this, but the few that do truly make you feel at home and the experience surpasses staying at any other hotel/resort because it adds a personal touch.

The apt itself is amazing! Only 2-3 min walk to grace bay beach...BEST BEACH EVERRRRR...and many bars and restaurants are also just 5-15 min walk from the house. Also, the grocery store (IGA) is about 5-10 min walk.

We highly recommend staying at Victoria's!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a ten day vacation at French Riviera and we absolutely loved it. We all felt so much at home at this condo that it was hard to leave in order to go home. The condo is exactly how it's described and shown in the pictures. It's also very clean and well maintained. Victoria, the owner is very accommodating, she provided us with a lot of helpful information on where to go and eat out. She was always there when we needed some advice. The condo really is in walking distance to everything you might need, the terrific beach which is only 5 minutes away when walking with little kids, the supermarket, a variety of excellent restaurants, the bakery, shopping. However, we rented a car for the whole time to discover the island and we were happy that we discovered sapodilla and taylor bay. The water is so shallow that you can walk for minutes until it reaches your knees. It's perfect for little kids and really relaxing for the parents. The views are stunning! On our way back we stopped at las brisas restaurant and enjoyed some drinks and swimming in their pool. We also used the pool at the condo a lot and absolutely loved it. We were always the only ones to use it. The restaurants near by the condo are all very good, we had great food every evening, some restaurants are right on the beach which we enjoyed the most. We spent 10 absolutely amazing days in turcs and caicos and it was definitely one of our best and most relaxing family vacations, and we have been to a lot of other destinations before. I would highly recommend this condo to our friends and family and we are already talking about coming back. Thank you so much! We had such a great time!

New Years Eve Vacation

  • 5 of 5

To anyone thinking of a vacation in Turks and Caicos, this property is highly recommended. The accommodations are extremely comfortable and the owner's thoughtful assistance was a fantastic bonus. The property is down the street from the most beautiful beach in the world, and a short walk from shopping, lots of dining options and a great harbor. I would recommend renting a scooter, you can see the whole island in a couple days, and taxis can get a little expensive. Bon Voyage!

Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time to TCI, but our first at Victoria's condo. The condo was everything like in the description and pictures...but only better!

This 2 bdrm/2 bath/2 story condo is on the second floor of the building with outside access, located on a quiet street just behind the Villa Del Mar. The first level consists of the dining/kitchen/living area, master bedroom (queen bed) with master bath, and second bathroom with shower. The second story is where the 2nd bdrm (queen bed and bunk beds) is located...which was great for our 24 yr old son who traveled with us this year. Although we didn't do much cooking at the condo, it seems to be very well stocked with dishes, utensils, pans, etc. There is also a gas BBQ grill at the pool area for use. I found throughout our stay, my favorite spot was the front porch for morning coffee, an afternoon drink, and evenings of conversation. By frequenting the front porch, we were able to meet our neighbors and enjoy "Garfield" the cat. Maybe it was the time of the year, but we did not use the A/C once! From the time we walked in until the time we had to leave, we opened all the windows to let the cool trade wind breezes through...although we did utilize the ceiling fans. The only load of laundry I did was our towels from the beach, and both washer & dryer worked great.

The condo is very well located to everything; although we had a rental car to experience the island, you wouldn't need it here. It is just a 5 minute walk to access Grace Bay Beach, 5-10 minute walk to the bakery, restaurants, shopping, grocery store, and 5 minutes further for more restaurants and shopping. (Some places were walked to were Caicos Bakery, Jimmy's Dive Bar, Danny Bouy's, Pizza Pizza, Graceway Gourmet. Go to FOTTAC in Regent Village to do rum tasting!)

We did have to contact Victoria once due to an internet/TV problem, but she responded very quickly and checked into the situation. BTW, before our trip we did contact our cellular carrier to have our phones set up for emergency use, but when we got to the condo, we learned that Victoria had a basic cell phone there pre-loaded for use (and reload at our cost if needed). What a plus!!! Also, a water cooler with 5 gallons of water for use. Those small extras are so appreciated!

In the end, we were sad to go. The condo was like our home-away-from-home. Don't overlook this wonderful place just because it's not on the beach... we would definitely stay again!

relaxing getaway in paradise near the heart of it all in Grace Bay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Victoria's French Riviera 2-bedroom home the last week of February 2014 with another couple! We were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary & 10years for us!! The location of the property is ideal!! Very close walk to the beach! Restaurants &grocery store are just blocks away& we felt very safe walking around!!(even ventured off course one day & ended up seeing the local culture& meeting some locals)! We did rent a car (thru Thrifty)for our entire stay& were happy we did!(although it's not necessary) we enjoyed driving all over the island & would get up early just to figure out what adventure or area we'd like to visit next!! We ate breakfast every morning at the condo & even prepared a few dinners both using the grill & the complete kitchen! We were able to use the pool nearly every afternoon and always had it to ourselves! We had some of the best meals ever while visiting tci! Some of our favorites were:Somewhere Cafe(right on the beach near Coral Gardens, which also had amazing snorkeling from shore...we even saw a huge Barracuda while we snorkeled), Vix(part of the Regent hotel) had great food, wonderful ambiance with outdoor seating& relaxed atmosphere, Las Bistras(beautiful view of Chalk Sound, & well worth the trip...don't miss Taylor & Sapodilla Bay, as the shallow waters & beautiful beach are perfect& relaxing, & even had a boat come in selling fresh lobster while we were there!), Big Al's has great wraps & shakes(located in the salt mills shopping area), & enjoyed Danny Buoy's, & Seaside cafe (also one of our best meals, next to the bakery)!! We tried somewhere new for each meal we ate & were never disappointed!! We utilized the guestbook provided for ideas on things we shouldn't miss & tried to both relax & also see as many things as we could! We went through Blue Waters ocean kayaking(self-guided though) thru the mangroves & over to iguana island!(absolutely beautiful beach on the other side, as well as kayaking down to the next beach & crossing to the other side where we had the entire thing to ourselves, got to see starfish, a lemon shark, and a huge eagle ray!) Did a private 1/2 day charter w/Grand Slam Fishing & had amazing results(caught 5 wahoo, 1 over 70#, & 1 baracuda!) Victoria was more than accommodating when it came to suggestions and anything we needed before& while we were there!! Loved walking Grace Bay Beach! This home is everything it's advertised as, and we look forward to a trip back to Turks and Caicos soon!!

Great Holiday in the TCI!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic week in the Turks and Caicos! What a beautiful place to vacation for our family. The condo is just one block back from the beach and the exclusive Grace Bay Club (Beautiful resort if you can afford it by the way). The location is just perfect, walking distance to the beach and many of the amenities (shopping etc) in the area. The unit itself was great, very clean and had everything we needed to make our stay a delight. Eating out is not cheap on Provo, so having a fully functional kitchen/bbq etc is a big plus for those on a budget.

So dont let the big sticker prices at the fancy resorts scare you, there are great places to stay in the TCI that wont cost you a fortune, you just need to do your homework. Thanks again to Vicki (the owner) for making our TCI vacation a huge hit with the whole family!!

WARNING! FALSE ADVERTISEMENT

  • 1 of 5

After I read all the enticing reviews and looked all the pictures up I thought it would make the perfect vacation place for my family of 4 + my father who came from another continent to meet us for the Holidays. In such good faith I booked the place for 2 weeks on the highest rate and paid in full. I did not mind signing a contract with a non refundable policy. I NOW KNOW there was a reason for them to do that...

Upon arrival we realized the photos and description of facility did not match what was advertised on the website. THERE'S NO OCEAN VIEW!

I have taken pictures of every single topic I'm describing below as what they advertised is probably 5 years ago when the property was new and maintained.

The communal little spa was full of mold and not safe for usage.

There was not a communal bar.

The outdoor grill was filthy and with no gas.

The "lush tropical landscaping" is a abandoned dirty yard with a dog and a cat hanging around.

The first load I washed/dried were full of sand and dirt.

The kitchen outlets weren't providing energy.

Out of the 3 TVs advertised on the website just one had a proper remote control and was working properly.

My babysitter felt from one broken chair left in the dining room.

The patio was poorly maintained and a dangerous place for kids due to stairs and open balcony and wires hanging around.

Lastly the dish washer when set to work, run for hours if you don't stop it.

The place is not a quiet "boutique" in a condominium development. It's a complex where the employees of the resort live. We needed to spend the first couple of days in a row inspecting the place and calling Victoria/Paul for guidance and repairs. The AC needed repair twice in 2 days and I imagine noone who goes to TC expect to deal with leakage noise and luggage damage.

By the end of the third day we were obligated to book an extremely expensive hotel because staying at this place was simply unbearable.This was by far the worst vacation experience we have had. It was a financial burden, heartbreaking and dissapointing. After almost 2 months I still cry over this terrible experience...I'm amazed people can use business to hurt people that way.

Owner's Response: 1) A/C Leakage - not something we could of known of before as units are tested on change over and nothing happened then, was responded to and repaired within the hour on the day of New Years Eve. 2) As advertised the Grill is a shared grill between 6 units and is the guests responsibility to clean after use again once reported was dealt with immediately. 3)The washer dryer was not full of sand on the day of arrival because as you may recall I saw it when you asked my advice on and I told you not to overfill but again to keep our guests happy on being reported was dealt with within the hour. 4)The tv remote worked fine for me but I replaced the batteries anyway. 5)Dvd player was working perfectly as they saw, after my husband cleaned their dirty dvd that was placed in to it. 6)We do not advertise a fitness center on VRBO as the equipment is a new addition it actually says view of pool. 7) All chairs where in perfect working order on arrival. 9)The pool does not have mold. New picture of the pool have been added taken 01/04/14. On arrival they didn't even know it was a 2 storey 2nd floor unit which is the opening sentence on our description of the unit on VRBO which was what seemed to be their concern as they had 2 young children. My husband and I felt that they really wanted to go to a resort but did not want to pay resort prices. Which was evident from our first face to face meeting I acknowledge they had made a mistake in booking something which is not what they wanted and tried within the terms of the booking conditions to help you by reopening your dates and contacting local real estate agents (we actually had some one to take their dates but they did not respond), I even offered to drive them to the hotel. We feel they brought up these complaints only to get a refund by exaggerating minor concerns that where dealt with within the hour of being reported as a small business we run the risk of being taken advantage of and we feel that they are indeed trying to that. We went above and beyond to help them in their mistake and to rectify any problems they had arrived in a very timely manner. Its unfortunate that again they are still trying to hurt us. Please do not be put off by these malicious comments as you will see from the guests that stayed before hand and previously that they are simply not true. If in doubt I can direct you to a number of very satisfied guests who will be more than happy to give you the correct picture.
